I Will Rejoice

Category: Tags: , ,

Many texts and pieces of music speak of joy and rejoicing in God in times of plenty and blessing, but this text from Habakkuk specifically notes our ability to rejoice even when things are not going well.  The slow melodic lines in the first half give way to a rousing and joyous call to “Rejoice in the Lord!” set in 7/8 time (with optional tambourine).  Choirs and audiences alike will enjoy this piece.
